    I have the same kind of illness, it's called silent seizure..
    You feel numb, you want to talk but you can't say the words you want to say (not a single word). It's like a defense mechanism that you would just talk regardless what words would come out of your mouth even if it does not make any sense. You can't even tell the person in front of you that you are having an attack. I had MRI, EEG, CT scan and other tests but still it comes back.
    To Serene: I admire you for what you did...
    To those making fun: it's not something to make fun of...

    My theory is that she did too much blow while partying with the stars during the pre-show. This is a clear case of coke jaw. CBS took down all of the YouTube videos, but you can still see Serene Branson’s coke habit spiral out of control thanks to my trusty flip cam!

    Personally have suffered from 'low sugar' episodes a couple times - the speech center is the most sensitive to these and yet during one, a person can hear themselves and be unable to correct the problem. Should carry a bottle of real juice, some hard candy, or? prefer chocolate myself :-)

    Having a family member with a seziure disorder I think ths looks alot like what used to be called peite mal seziures. I've seen it before. A person goes glassey eyed and either does not respond to anyone or babbles on making no sense and sorta seeming as if they are high or drunk. It usually only lasts a min. or two and the person comes around totally unaware of what just happened. I hope this is the case for Serene, and not a TIA attack because usually these type of seziures are not life threatening and they are less rare than people think. I wish her all the best and hope she did not have a TIA.

    Serene MUST seek professional advice, if it is a TIA, the likelihood of a further stroke is very high. She needs tests and monitoring, rest is not enough.

    Sounds like a TIA attack

    PRAYING FOR A RAPID RECOVERY

    When I first heard this, I got chills. And then I watched it and nearly started to cry. The look on her face is terror, but as a pro, she simply didn't give up. She tried to be courageous, and I admire her for that. I rarely follow stories so far from my home, but I will keep checking in. I pray Serene is doing GREAT and channels her amazing courage to defeat this, whatever it is. Good luck, Serene!
